School Visits by Award-Winning Author, Maggie van Galen

I have read to over 3,500 students ranging in age from toddlers to 5th graders, and I haven't lost one yet!


A typical presentation lasts 45 minutes to one hour. I make it fun with a reading of the book(s), questions and answers, and fun stories.

Age range & group size:

My presentation is appropriate for students from preschool through elementary school. I adapt my presentation for the younger children. I have read to all different size groups, from 10 children to over 300. For the larger presentations, I put the illustrations up on a screen and read with (or without) a microphone. Depending on your school's needs, I can do one large presentation or up to 5 sessions in one day.

Giving back to schools:

I always leave a signed copy of each book for your school's library. An order form will be created for you to distribute to the students, and signed copies will be delivered to your school.


Please note that if you are in a school district with limited budgets, I am open to discussing pro bono work. Contact me to discuss in more detail.

About me:

My tagline is "Always Follow Your Dreams" and that is what I am doing!
